I bought this box at one of the Moscow beriozkas in the mid-1980's. The lid is hinged, the box measures approximately 5" X 3.75" X 1 and it is in excellent condition. The picture is a battle scene, and the title translates to The Defense of Kozelsk. The invaders laid siege to the city for seven weeks before the city defenses finally collapsed. For the Russian people, Kozelsk has become a symbol of the will to resist. The Mstera name and the date (1983) appear at the lower left edge of the picture, followed by the title and the artist's name (Kostakov, U), which is preceeded by "xyd, " an abbreviation for khydoshnik, or artist. The sides of the box are not flat, but are slightly curved.
